    I was thinking about going with....

    ill give you three that worked great for me. .


    Mass and rest. short hard wourkouts, great for mass and getting enough rest
    day 1: chest/ biceps
    day 2:rest
    day 3: back/ triceps
    day 4: rest
    day 5: shoulders/traps
    day 6:rest
    day 7: legs
    day 8 rest.

    lean mass, again short workouts, not as much rest but still enough
    day 1: chest
    day 2: back
    day 3: rest
    day 4: shoulders/traps
    day 5: arms/ forearms
    day 6: legs/ calves
    day 7: rest

    leaning out/keeping gains. i use this workout to lean out and keep my gaines from my bulk. i do cardio after everyworkout. for the first week i do 20 min, the second week i do 30 min, the fourth week and on i do 40 min.

    day 1: chest/ forearms
    day 2: back/ calves
    day 3: rest
    day 4: shoulders/ traps/ abs
    day 5: arms/ forearms
    day 6: legs/ calves
    day 7: rest

    if you want to keep what youve got heres some suggestions

    mon-chest
    legs-tuesday ( i wouldnt do legs before back, hams are involved in some back exercises and if you do lat pulldowns your leg pain may get in the way. not an overall good bodypart to work before back.)
    wed-back/shoulders ( if you wanted to do back and shoulders just do back and reardelt since rear delt is already being worked. save some energy for your front and rear delt, maybe throw in some trap work this on shoulder day)
    thursday-cardio ( try doing cardio first thing, or right after a workout, it takes your body 20 min to get into fat burning mode and if you do it after your workout you should already be there)
    friday-ARMS before the weekend ( just make sure your tris arent still sore on monday for chest!!!)

    hope this helped man

    sounds good, id leave out the incline bench on arm day thats already going to be a long workout and chest is your next bodypart after arms so its too close to that day. other than that i might throw in a rest day after back or after legs, something that gives you a break in there. im so sore after every workout i wish i could take a rest day after each one. you want to make sure your bodies getting enough rest. growing is done on your couch, in you bed, or at the movies when your resting, not in the gym. good routine so far. what are you lifts looking like for your days??

    monday- i do a flat bench maybe 5x5 or 10,8,6,4 and then i do a burnout or negative set. Then i got to incline barbell and do 3 to 4 sets sometimes heavy or light depending on my previous flat bench sets. Then do 2 light sets on dcline(not my fav). After that i will go to dbs. If i did heavy on flat bench then i will go to incline for DBs if i do heavy on Incline i will do heavy on DBs for flat bp. I will also to dips,cables, flys
    wed- back and shoulders. I will do shoulder press(varies between dbs and barbell), then i do rows, several plate back machines. They are similar to rows. I will also do overhand grip pulls with the barbell and i burnout on most exercises. for shoulders i do plate raises,up right rows, some isolated db lifts for shoulder, and arnolds. This is not the exact order.
    leg/arm day- i do heavy squat, sl deadlift, leg extensions,leg curls, for arms i do close grip and then several supersets and other variations untill i feel my arms are well pumped and worked.

    not a bad start. here are some suggestions

    on chest day less is more, atleast for me. pick three lifts and concetrate on building those up. if you do 6-7 lifts you just wearing youself down and not really getting better at those lifts. if you only have three lifts, its easier to improve them weak by week and easier to add mass. also, always start with incline, the upper chest needs to be prioritised so do inclines first. i wouldnt do more then 3 sets per expercise

    my chest routine goes like this: bench ( i bench half on the bench with my ass off down towards to floor like when doing a dumbell pullover, this way i open up my rib cage and hit my upper pecs even on a flat bench) them hammer strength incline, then heavy pec dec and im done. i only do one working set per lift.

    you could do something like, incline BB or DB, then flat BB or DB, then finish with some weighted dips, cable crossovers or flys. just pick three

    for back and shoulder day, start with back, its a bigger muscle group and it wouldnt be wise to do shoulders first.

    for mine i do, one arm reverse grip la pull down, bent reverse grip/close grip BB rows, old school t-bar, then i finish off with some rack pulls

    you could start with some pull ups or lat pull downs, then head over and do some bent rows, then t-bar and id suggest trying out some rack pulls, theyve added so much width to my back.

    then id transition into some reverse pec dec or bent raises. id hit the front delt and side delt ona different day

    for front delt and side delt i do BB militarypress, side laterals and wide grip upwright rows,

    you could try the same, arnolds work fine however i am not a fan.

    for legs, your routine looks good so far.

    and for arms dont over do it, they get worked on chest day, they get worked on back day, they get worked on shoulder day and then they get worked again on arm day. id only do three exercises each max. biceps wide grip BB curls, some incline db curls and some preacher curls work nice

    for triceps heres my secret, use a v-grip bar from the seated row and put it on the tricep pull down. it works your triceps sooo much more then regualr pushdowns. then some over head Db ext. and some reverse cable extentions.


    hope that wasnt too confusing haha
